On Friday 10th May, the annual eGaming Review B2B Awards took place and Playtech, internationally renowned software providers saw themselves top the table with four separate awards; highlighting their strength in the industry and how important they are to its growth.
In its third year, the awards ceremony took place in the Atrium at Wembley Stadium and as well as giving some of the biggest companies out there a nod, it also gives a chance for smaller up and coming companies to be seen and heard too. Other noteworthy winners included Net Entertainment in several categories including Innovation in Slot Provision but its Playtech who really stole the show scooping honours across four key categories.
Playtech walked away with the awards for Best Poker Network, Best Mobile Provider, Best Slot Provider and notably Best Bingo Network. Faith in the Playtech brand is something that cannot be disputed in the online gaming world, with top sites such as Bet365 Bingo and William Hill featuring their software and with a haul of awards like this, it is clear that the industry will be looking to Playtech to see what’s next in terms of innovation and advancement in software technology.
Speaking on behalf of his company, CEO Mor Weizer could not have been more proud, describing the awards as a ‘great honour’ and highlighting how the ‘generous acknowledgement’ of their work is going to be central in propelling the company forward in 2012. Since their foundation in 1999, the company have always been at the forefront of the software and development industry, often finding themselves up against the Microgaming brand but this time, they proved themselves the victors.
After previous news suggesting that all was not well between the software giant and their William Hill Online partnership, maybe this significant statement of the company’s quality will help talks along. It had previously been reported that William Hill had been less than pleased with the way the talks about their joint venture with the software company had been going. Relations broke down back in 2011 but talks are said to still be underway; and when a company is achieving such impressive honours, you’d think those working in partnership with them would be keen to keep them on board.
Playtech management and staff will still be revelling in their glory and why not? Winning plaudits across the board really is a great achievement.
